    The clipless body mounting system is a function of the shock towers.

    The Hoss 4x4 shock towers can be replaced by Slash 4x4 / Stampede 4x4 shock towers, which are a direct fit, cheap, and easy to...

    Shoe Goo is about as close to perfect as you're going to get, with it's combination of being super durable while remaining at least somewhat flexible. In all of my bodies that I've repaired with...

    It's a shame, as so many of the former free services (photobucket, tinypic, etc) have stopped offering free hosting, many taking the VERY shady route of turning all of their formerly hosted pictures...

    Duratrax tires look nice but they are cheap - not just in terms of price but also quality. They use thin rubber. This means that they not only balloon like crazy but are also prone to tearing...

    Yeah the Bandit has plenty of potential, especially if you are comparing it against buggies from 20-30 years ago.

    One thing the Bandit has going for it compared to other current buggies is that it...

    Anyone who strips the plastic gears in their 2075 would be better off buying a $20 set of metal gears and converting their 2075 into a 2075X instead of junking their stripped 2075 and spending $50...

    I use two 2s LiPo packs stacked on top of each other in my Slash 4x4 and Stampede 4x4. I usually use them with a series adapter as a 4s Pack. Occasionally I use them with a parallel adapter as a...

    It's the same on my 2wd Rustler - thicker hexes in the front.

    I only upgraded the rears on that truck. Hexes get stripped due to torque from the motor. The front wheels on a 2wd truck don't...

    The Hoss 4x4 is a great truck. There are a large number of Traxxas vehicles that all share a common platform (shares most of the parts). This includes the Slash 4x4, Rustler 4x4, Stampede 4x4,...

    A little bit of "puffing" on the end is not really what a LiPo does when it puffs. It will swell up all along the length of the entire battery. Here is an example of a Traxxas pack I had that had...

    The sway bars might help a little bit, but don't expect a huge difference. They are really meant for racing, where you have a clean and finely-tuned vehicle and want every last bit of advantage. ...

    Are you planning to keep the Sidewinder 4? Your ESC would be very under-powered compared to your motor at that point, and you would probably hit thermal shutdown on the ESC often. Castle sells the...

    Yes it would take a much stronger crash to break a 5mm shaft instead of a 1/8th" (~3.2mm) shaft.

    It's a much bigger deal with a larger motor, but it's not exclusive to larger motors. Usually...

    Well of course the back is tight, there is no steering in the rear :p

    Yeah, a fair amount of slack or "loosness" is normal. Every joint has a little slack and it all adds up. Of course, from...

    1/8th inch, which is about 3.2mm. It's the smaller shaft size common on 1/10th scale vehicles.

    Never again.

    Stampede (2wd) and Stampede 4x4 bodies are interchangeable. The holes in the bodies are at the same locations. The Bigfoot body should work fine on a Stampede 4x4.

    I did this with the Stampede 4x4 that I built as a casual project, mostly from spare parts. I didn't have a spare front differential or a spare center drive-shaft so I left those components out and...

    OP said that the clicking goes away if his pinion and spur are not meshed, so that would imply that nothing downstream of the spur is the source of the clicking.

    That's normal. Every joint or gear mesh between the motor and the wheels has a little bit of slack, and it all adds together.



    If you no longer hear the clicking sound when rolling your...

    4-pole motors do tend to be "notchy" as you describe. It's normal. The "notchy" feeling is stronger with a larger motor because the magnets are larger. You might perceive that as feeling almost...
